A professional singer for more than 16 years, Riccardo has performed several hundred solo gigs as well as working with legendary artists such as R&B singer James Taylor (Artful Dodger) and most recently soul singer Alexander O'Neal. Each of Riccardo's performances is tailored to suit the mood of the occasion and the make up of the audience.
Blessed with a vocal range far beyond his years, Riccardo performs Motown & soul music (such as songs by Lionel Richie, Marvin Gaye, George Benson, Al Green & Elton John), contemporary popular songs (George Michael, Lemar and Will Young), old crooner swing numbers (Frank Sinatra & Dean Martin), classic love ballads to hits from the musicals such as Miss Saigon, The Lion King, West Side Story & Joseph and his Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat.
The silver tongue of Riccardo has been wowing crowds for many years... His 'Rat Pack' tribute numbers are always popular with guests no matter the age or occasion, and he is happy to take special requests.
Riccardo began, and wow the people were hooked - his performance was brilliant - he sang wonderfully, was relaxed and confident, put the audience at ease and had them eating out of his hand in no time.

Having worked with Riccardo on numerous events during the past 5 years, I can wholeheartedly recommend him for any function you may be considering, As well as being a superb vocalist, he has great stage presence, oozes cheeky charisma and is fantastic at getting the audience involved and raising the atmosphere. There is always a packed dance floor when he's performing and the feedback I receive from clients is tremendous.
